I have a cheapish bracket that works fine.

The problem is not traveling by road

Its the gravel travel where the real "quality" starts to shine.

My little gismo fails that test.


@Offroadrider , please give some feedback once you have taken it on your first trip off the pavement.
I need to buy something sturdy as well that won't break the bank
Tomorrow will be my 4th off road tour with it,, seriously I can not fault it.


Tried to view this on takealot and all I got was page not available, so presumably it was a daily deal? What is it called so I can look for it?

A few months ago I needed a new phone mount as I was sick of the over priced motorcycle specific shit that causes your phone to heat up and is generally bigger than a top box and panniers combined, so took to takealot to see what they had in the bicycle department,  R399 for a phone setup that has worked better than anything I have owned before.

Bought this one on eBay, was very cheap but took months to arrive in the post. Made of aluminium, turned it so that the phone sits horizontal. It has a big cross handle at the back that you turn to lock the slide in place, phone has never come loose even on dirt roads.

If you do anything rough/off road for lengths of time you may well find your cameras etc fucking out. Phones are not designed for this abuse. Fine for bicycles and tar. For anything else just get a bike GPS imho.

My thoughts exactly :thumleft:
I had an HTC HD2, was a great fone, until I mounted it. Even on tar, after a few months the camera focus mechanism came loose and rattled around inside.
Although the construction of fones has been made more rugged over the years, it still isnt built for that.
Having said that, my soon to be useless brick Huawei fone has been mounted for a long time with no issues.
